The Industrial-Grade Mining Drill is a system used in the Agon Wastes of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, seen only in Mining Station B. Space Pirates are trying to convert it into a weapon, according to the scan. Indeed, if Samus approaches it, her Threat Assessment will rise. To utilize it, Samus must activate two Bomb Slots, which will cause the drill to rapidly spin, and break down a wall blocking a Dark Portal. It can then be used as a platform.
